Seminar Modules

Objective of a Seminar

The students have learned to deal with original scientific literature and to research up-to-date information on their own. They are able to acquire deep insight into a given subject, mainly based on self-study, to give a presentation of the subject utilizing adequate presentation techniques, and to defend the subject in a scientific discussion. Moreover, they have participated in the scientific discussion of subjects presented by fellow students.

The technical content varies. Seminars are offered on diverse up-to-date subjects of current scientific interest in the field of Information Technology. Seminars, listed below can be used as INFOTECH Seminars. Listing here does not mean, that they are currently offered nor that they are offered in the semester (winter/summer) in question. The actual available seminars are published by the institutes offering it. Seminars have to be booked twice, firstly with the institutes for a seat and secondly with the office of examinations to receive a marking.
